Abstract

We have carried out Raman spectroscopic experiments on air clathrates in the GReenland Ice Core Project (GRIP) deep ice core. We present new N-2/O-2 measurements that markedly differ from previous measurements of the Dye-3 ice core: the N-2/O-2 ratio we observe is much closer to atmospheric. This has new implications for the interpretation of gas distributions in ice sheets and the reconstruction of past atmospheric conditions.
